About the

Cov e r

Collaboration is in full swing at the Governor’s School for the Arts in downtown Norfolk. The 30-year-old school is for public high school visual and performing arts students from throughout the region. Community foundation grants helped the school expand in 2017 and united its dance, art and music students in one building.

Putting Ideals into Action a thriving community with opportunity for all . This ideal is both the Hampton Roads Community Foundation’s new vision statement and at the heart of all we do. Through leadership, philanthropy, and civic engagement, our community foundation is committed to helping shape a positive future for this coastal region we proudly call home. Since its founding in 1950, Virginia’s first community foundation has flourished with the support of generous donors from all walks of life. They have helped turn $2,350 in initial donations into a $355 million endowment to benefit our region’s people. Over the decades, the focus has never wavered from using assets, energy and ideas to make Hampton Roads a great place to live, work and raise families. Our community foundation’s role as a nonprofit funder and college scholarship provider is amplified by its work in leadership initiatives and a new focus on increasing civic engagement.

When Payton Waterman, a rising fifth-grader at Shelton Park Elementary School, thinks of the military, she sees flamingos and penguins. Her creativity emerged recently through a mural she painted during after-school arts classes for children with parents in the military.

love for the military and the strength of the armed forces by combining attributes of flamingos and penguins. Her whimsical illustration features a pink “flamingo’s large feet and long legs that allow it to stand tall,” Payton notes. Payton also painted penguins because “just as the military is strong, penguins are also strong and take good care of their families. Penguins are tough!” Mannaah Blackwell, a Young Audiences artist, and Sandra Burr, Shelton Park art instructor, taught Payton and 30 other Shelton Park students. The professionals encouraged budding artists to use symbols to unleash their imaginations and express emotions. They worked together on a large mural that will hang in the school cafeteria. Visual arts is the focus of the program at Shelton Park and White Oaks Elementary Schools in Virginia Beach. At Bay View Elementary School in Norfolk, the focus is on “storytelling through spoken word, song, and dance,” says Hillary McAndrew Plate, YAV arts integration manager. Shelton Park Principal Tara Brewer likes that the “initiative uses the Five C’s, which are essential concepts children need before they can learn – communication, collaboration, citizenship, critical thinking and creativity.”

Payton Waterman puts the finishing touches on a school mural.

Students like Payton benefit in multiple ways from the Military Child Initiative started by Young Audiences Arts for Learning Virginia. They not only get to express themselves through visual and performing arts, they find new ways to connect with classmates and improve their self-esteem. A three-year, $36,500 grant from the William H. Goldback Fund for Performing Arts administered by the Hampton Roads Community Foundation helps Young Audiences bring the program to more than 80 Norfolk and Virginia Beach students. All attend public elementary schools with many students from military families. After-school classes last six to 12 weeks. Payton, who wants to be a mechanical engineer, “is shy among other people except when she is building or creating something,” says her mother Shandy Waterman. “Payton relates well to classmates only when she is in a creative environment.” “Her creativity flourishes when she attends YAV art classes; it is one of the few places where Payton is in her comfort zone,” Shandy says. While her daughter is “not very interactive with other children who live in our military housing community … Payton sees her classmates in this art class as her ‘tribe.’” One of Payton’s creations depicts her

Communities

Helping Students Prepare for Great Lives Sheldon Moss of Norfolk wears his new three-piece suit with pride. He’s even prouder of the changes beneath – his new attitude toward education and his potential for success.

“I’m still growing up, but I’m paying attention now,” says 18-year-old Sheldon, a June graduate of Norfolk’s Granby High School headed to Norfolk State University. “Before, I was all over the place and getting into trouble. That was the toughest thing for me to change -- to realize that I have potential if I stay grounded.” Sheldon credits his turnaround to Communities in Schools of Hampton Roads, a nonprofit that helps students at risk of dropping out of school. Tierra Everett, Granby High site coordinator, connected with Sheldon when he was a 10th grader known for skipping classes. The regional organization meets one on one with 621students attending 11 schools in Hampton, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Virginia Beach. Participants are recommended by teachers, staff, parents or themselves. The national Communities in Schools initiative started in 1977 in New York to help students thrive in school and beyond. The Hampton Roads Community Foundation has supported the regional effort since 2012, including a $15,000 grant in 2017 for the Granby High site, which serves 105 students. Poor attendance, problems with authority figures and mediocre grades clouded Sheldon’s early high school years. That started to change when he joined Communities in Schools. His school coordinator often met with him daily and linked him with mentors and opportunities that improved his academics, behavior and attendance. Connections are tailored to individual needs, and outcomes are measured. For Sheldon, the youngest of five children of a single mother, the program introduced him to role models, such as Virginia Supreme Court Justice S. Bernard Goodwyn, attorney Eric Moody and Mark Johnson, SunTrust Bank vice president and community development manager. Goodwyn and Moody talked with Sheldon about sticking with goals and the possibility of him becoming a lawyer. Johnson arranged to buy Sheldon a new suit after

hearing him speak at a Communities in Schools breakfast. “He impressed me with his authenticity and charisma (and) seemed to be a very sharp and intellectual young man,” Johnson says. Sheldon “reminded me of myself and some friends like me who were raised by a single parent. So I just decided to help provide him with a gift” to wear at speaking engagements and events. Site coordinators assess needs at each participating school and develop plans and partnerships that include businesses, volunteers and university interns. At Suffolk’s Elephant’s Fork Elementary School, for example, the lack of dental hygiene was an issue. Site coordinator Iris Mathis-Spellman got Nansemond Suffolk Dentistry to donate 200 toothbrushes for students. She also recruited

a Smiles for Kids staff member to conduct a dental education puppet show and give away toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss. After talking with students, “we develop an individualized student support plan,” says Hope R. Sinclair, the organization’s regional executive director. Each plan identifies individual goals and obstacles and ways “to get through the barriers.” Site coordinators frequently check with teachers to make sure students are improving and find ways to help if problems arise. Because of the program, Sheldon knows others are invested in his future. “There are many eyes on me,” Sheldon says. “I don’t want to let them down.” 9

Enhancing Life for Adults With Disabilities Kyle Didio “gets a great big smile on his face” when he learns it’s an Ability Center of Virginia day, says his mom, Dona Didio of Chesapeake.

Ability Center participants enjoy making music. Among them, on the front row, are Kyle Didio (blue shirt) and Ryan Jones (plaid shirt).

Jones. He gets excited when he goes on Ability Center field trips with friends to ice skate in his wheelchair, see animals at the Virginia Zoo and feel the sea breeze along the Virginia Beach boardwalk. Kyle particularly likes what his mom calls “socializing with the ladies” – smiling at the friendly staff members at the center. Dona and Jerry Didio rely on the Ability Center to provide the social, emotional, cognitive and creative stimulation Kyle craves along with the physical care he needs. They like that their son is “being treated with love, respect, dignity and a spirit of joy by people for whom it’s not just a job.”

Who Was Laura Turner? Laura Turner, namesake of The Laura Turner Fund, organized a school in what is now Virginia Beach in 1904, according to her 1956 obituary. She was a 1901 graduate of Goucher College, who taught for two years at the Princess Anne County school she started. Laura was a widow, who died at the age of 75 just 19 days after her 46-year-old daughter, Josephine Turner. Josephine had cerebral palsy, according to her death certificate. Laura left funds to help those with cerebral palsy to Eggleston Services, which donated them to the community foundation in 1997. Each year Laura Turner grants are awarded to organizations helping people with cerebral palsy lead better lives.

Kyle, 31, is among 500 people with developmental disabilities who benefit from the Ability Center of Virginia’s social and recreation programs for area residents of all ages. He goes twice a week for an upbeat daytime program filled with music, activities and field trips. The Ability Center and its therapeutic programs have been part of Kyle’s life since he was first diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a baby. Although he is nonverbal and physically limited, Kyle is happy at the Virginia Beach center, which has benefitted since 1999 from more than $101,612 in grants from the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. Nearly half of the grants came from The Laura Turner Fund, a field-of-interest fund that benefits programs for adults with cerebral palsy. The fund was established in 1990 with a donation from Eggleston Services. Over the decades Turner grants have paid for furniture, carpeting, scholarships, summer camp and other needs. The Turner Fund currently is helping the center expand the program Kyle enjoys from two to three or more days a week. At the Ability Center, Kyle laughs as he waves bells while listening to karaoke singers. During movie time, he enjoys being with his long-time friend, Ryan C O N T I N U E D F R O M PA G E 12

She loves Mondays and Tuesdays when she gets to stay late for Girls on the Run Hampton Roads at Brighton Elementary School in Portsmouth. The program is fun and teaches her and 10 other Brighton girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. The Brighton team is among 54 Girls on the Run Hampton Roads teams serving more than 750 elementary and middle-school girls in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, Hampton, Newport News, York County, Williamsburg, Isle of Wight and Southampton County. Since 1996, Girls on the Run Hampton Roads has worked with more than 12,000 area girls. In 2017, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation awarded a threeyear $60,000 grant to expand the 12-week program to five schools that receive federal Title I funding. Running is among the activities that teach teamwork and problem-solving and encourage girls to have healthy lifestyles that help prevent chronic disease. To celebrate its 12,000th girl milestone, 12 girls, including Nicole, were selected as GoTo Girls, who represent Girls on the Run at events throughout the year. Tabitha Kirkland, Nicole’s coach, isn’t surprised Nicole is a GoTo Girl. Known as “Nice Nicole” by her teammates, Nicole “is a mediator, gets along with every girl and works well with others,” Tabitha says. Tabitha is Brighton’s librarian and was instrumental in

She worked to bring the program to Brighton to provide a safe outlet for girls to embrace healthy lifestyles and develop social skills in a non-competitive environment before heading to middle school.

Each Girls on the Run Hampton Roads semester culminates with a celebratory 5K run at Virginia Wesleyan University. As a GoTo Girl, Nicole leads the countdown to start the races. Nicole, who wants to be a police officer, is happy she joined Girls on the Run.

Dancer Katherine Montgomery says she finally felt like “part of the family” when the Governor’s School for the Arts created a dance studio in its downtown Norfolk headquarters. percussion student Nathan Hockey. Previously, music students had to lug their instruments on a 10-minute walk across town to borrowed space where they rehearsed. Classes had to end early so students could repack equipment and carry it back to the school. Thanks to the expansion, instrumental music students now have their own space where “we can leave our equipment and set it up as we need to,” says Nathan, 17, a rising senior at Kempsville High School in Virginia Beach. That adds about 90 minutes of instruction time each week to his schedule. Visual arts student Sonia Deshmukh, 18, a June graduate of Princess Anne High School in Virginia Beach, tells of similar experiences. In the new studio, she could leave her sewing machine and art supplies as she focused on her senior fabrics and fiber project. The new studios have excellent acoustics for music and natural lighting that enhance dance and visual arts. “Our space is just beautiful,” says Sonia, who will study art at Virginia Commonwealth University. “It’s really inspiring, with amazing sunlight, and it’s very peaceful.” Andrea believes the larger quarters “have brought about a greater awareness of our existence ... because we teach our young people to give back to the community.” Sonia was among art students who painted colorful designs on refurbished public benches along Granby Street. “It’s been thrilling to see what’s happened here,” Andrea says. “We would not be where we are today without the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. Its support has allowed us to do what we do best – and that’s to provide amazing training to high school artists.”

Moving to the high school’s expanded location in downtown Norfolk meant dancers from South Hampton Roads public schools could easily work with music, visual arts, theater and film students. They no longer had to study blocks away at off-site locations. “It’s been really fun ... and easier to collaborate,” says Katherine, 18, who graduated from Norfolk’s Maury High School in June and is headed to the University of Cincinnati. Grants totaling $100,000 from the Hampton Roads Community Foundation, combined with contributions from other major donors, helped the 30-year-old Governor’s School add 18,000 square feet of renovated space in an adjacent Granby Street building. Community foundation donors have provided more than $653,000 in grants to the school since it started 30 years ago. Among its donors supporting the school are the Nancy N. Nusbaum and V.H. Nusbaum Jr. Donor-Advised Fund and the Alison J. and Ella W. Parsons Fund. The school’s expansion created “four dance studios, an all-purpose classroom, two locker rooms, an orchestra and jazz space, and a percussion studio,” says Dr. Andrea Warren, executive director. Film students also gained their own space. The expanded school includes a new Steinway grand piano paid in large part by the community foundation’s E.K. Sloane Fund. “We can house all six departments under the same roof for the first time ... That enabled us to take 45 more students,” Andrea adds. The regional school serves 365 public high school pupils from Chesapeake, Franklin, Isle of Wight County, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Southampton County, Suffolk and Virginia Beach. Centralization makes “a big difference” to

happens to you and you know it isn’t right, find someone you can trust to tell.” The musical’s signature song, “Just Tell,” amplifies Simon’s message as children and adults in the audience sing along. Simon calls himself “the little voice that lives within all of us – the voice with a choice.” His words give Lori the strength to tell her mom her secret so she can put a stop to the abuse. Marscheider sees first-hand how Simon motivates abused children to tell adults they trust that something inappropriate is happening to them. She recalls how at a Great Neck Recreation Center show “a girl came forward and asked me if now was a good time to tell. I said, yes, and within 24 hours an arrest was made.” “This show takes a really touchy subject and makes it so children can communicate,” says Season Roberts,

Regina Marscheider, a Virginia Beach puppeteer and founder of the Stop Abuse nonprofit, is the creator of the “Simon Says Just Tell” musical she presents at schools, camps and other places working with children. She made the marionettes and developed the show in 1986 after doing research with convicted child molesters, child protective service workers and police officers. Marscheider says more than 160 child molesters have been prosecuted and incarcerated after children watching the show got the courage to tell adults what was happening to them. The program has won national awards, including the Jefferson Award for Public Service. A $41,730 grant the Hampton Roads Community Foundation awarded in 2017 from the Sue Cook Winfrey Memorial Fund will make it possible for Stop Abuse to bring the show to more than 5,000 Portsmouth Public Schools students attending 13 elementary schools. Stop Abuse regularly updates the script and music and presents the show in Chesapeake, Hampton, Norfolk, Suffolk and Virginia Beach. After each show a law enforcement officer or social worker joins Marscheider in listening to children who want to ask questions or share information. At a recent Safety Camp show for 100 children at the Great Neck Recreation Center in Virginia Beach, a marionette named Lori worries when her mom announces she is re-marrying. Lori’s future step-father is a man who has sexually abused her and sworn Lori to secrecy. When a tiny green Super Hero named Simon pops into the girl’s life, he tells her “if something

executive director of Virginia Beach CASA. Her organization advocates in the court system for abused and neglected children. “This is a unique way to bring awareness and prevention,” Roberts adds. “Simon Says Just Tell” is therapeutic for Marscheider, who was 11 years old when a family friend sexually abused her. “I told my mother, who just told me to get over it,” says Marscheider. There was no therapy for her or police report filed. “Since I started doing this show, my therapy is every time a child comes forward to tell,” Marscheider says. “Simon represents children’s inner-most feelings and gives them the tools and courage to talk about what is troubling them.”

That hardship turned into a blessing – one-on-one time with the tutor that helped him improve his English. “When I came back to school after a semester away … I was more motivated than ever,” Jonathan recalls. Jonathan was Jonathan Carmona helps students on a college track at find their paths. Landstown High School. With his mother on medical disability, money was tight, so he researched scholarships with the help of his guidance counselor and studied the college application process. “I knew I should be competitive at a four-year college, and I really wanted that opportunity,” Jonathan recalls. He graduated in the top 20 in his class and was active at Landstown’s student council, drama productions, madrigal group and volleyball team. The James 2:26 Fund scholarship turned out to be a perfect fit. Anonymous donors created the scholarship fund at the community foundation in 2008 and gave it a preference for helping area students living in public or subsidized housing. Over the past decade, it has provided $627,783 in scholarships for 14 Hampton Roads students, most for four years of study. In 2017-18, six recipients studied at Old Dominion University, George Mason University and Virginia Tech. Previous recipients have also attended James Madison University and Norfolk State University.

His Landstown High School guidance counselor burst into tears and told him the scholarship meant “you’re going to college!” “Jonathan had this joyful personality; it was infectious,” says Rashida Moore-Williams, now assistant principal at Virginia Beach Middle School. “He was so caring to others, and, despite the language barriers, he always pushed himself … The challenge was helping him find his path and finding the right resources … He worked so hard. I’m not at all surprised by his success today.” The scholarship capped an intense period for a student determined to improve his life — one class, one opportunity and one step at a time. “I’ll never forget receiving it,” Jonathan says of his scholarship award letter. “It was a very, very powerful day.” He has since earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in global affairs from George Mason University and works in GMU’s Office of International Admissions. Jonathan lived in Dorado, Puerto Rico, until age 12. Family upheaval led his mother Glory Marrero to become a single mom when Jonathan was a toddler. To support her three children, she worked as a florist and in a medical office while aunts and grandparents pitched in with childcare. Hoping for a better life, she moved with her children to Hampton Roads where she had friends. Jonathan, a middle-school student, arrived in Hampton Roads knowing little English. Determined to succeed, he dug into his studies. “I knew that I didn’t come from privilege,” he says. “The things I wanted to do in life had to be earned. I became ambitious. I wanted to be the best student that I could be to make my mom’s hard work worth it.” In eighth grade, Jonathan faced a new challenge: double-hip replacement surgery to correct a congenital defect. During rehabilitation, he was taught for six

‘This Scholarship Changed My Life’

“This scholarship changed my life,” says Jonathan, the first in his family to earn bachelor’s and master’s degrees. In college he was a resident assistant, sang in the University Chorale, joined the Hispanic Student Association, played club football and volleyball, and was active in La Unidad Latina Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity. As a GMU international transcript evaluator, he advocates for foreign students and those learning English as a second language. To help them succeed, he shares his life motto: “Be who you needed when you were younger” and tells them “your journey is what makes you who you are today.” “Jonathan is so resilient,” says Alexis Thornton, a fellow Landstown High School graduate, who also graduated from GMU and considers him a mentor and friend. “He was determined to get to college and once he was there, he took advantage of every single opportunity that came his way. He’s become a leader.”

When Shirley Liverman’s husband passed away in February 2017, the Suffolk resident was determined to find the perfect way to honor his legacy. Although Milton was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer shortly after retirement, “he didn’t look like what he was going through,” Shirley says. “He had hope even when the doctors didn’t give him hope. He never complained.” Given only six months to live after his initial diagnosis, Milton lived for six more years. “I prayed for a miracle [during his illness], but we were already living the miracle for six years,” Shirley says. “Milton loved God, his family, his career and his community,” Shirley says. “He loved life.” Through his scholarship fund, Milton’s legacy of love will continue forever. The Liverman Scholarship will forever help graduating high school seniors from Suffolk Public Schools pay for college. The first Liverman Scholar will be named in 2019 and will receive a scholarship for the 2019-20 school year.

Milton and Shirley Liverman were married nearly 25 years.

“We were married for 24 years, nine months and two days,” Shirley says. The couple had planned to renew their vows for their 25th wedding anniversary that April. Shirley’s husband, Milton Liverman, Ph.D., was a retired Suffolk Public Schools superintendent. He dedicated 36 years to education in Suffolk, starting as a high school math teacher and then leading the school division for 10 years and earning a regional Superintendent of the Year award in 2006. In 2017, Shirley established the Dr. Milton R. Liverman Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. Her goal was to “keep a memory of him” alive while honoring his love of children and education. As superintendent, “every decision he made was based on how it would impact the students,” says Shirley. The Livermans were partners in multiple ways. As educators, they retired at the same time in 2010 and became ministers. They founded 4 HZ GLORY MINISTRY, which Shirley continues today. They enjoyed traveling, with Hilton Head being a favorite destination. The Livermans were generous supporters of their church and its missions plus several nonprofits, including Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters and The Genieve Shelter.

The Katharine H.S. Edmonds Reading Materials Fund honors Kitty Edmonds, a founder of the Eastern Shore Public Library, who passed away in 1982. The Eastern Shore Public Library Foundation created an endowment in 2017 with the Eastern Shore of Virginia Community Foundation, our affiliate, to honor Kitty and support libraries in Accomack and Northampton counties. Born in 1901 in Richmond, Kitty married an Eastern Shore native and moved to Accomac. She was a Westhampton College graduate, librarian and mother of two who helped start Accomack County’s first public library in 1957 and worked there until retiring in 1974. “My grandmother was a bookworm and a free thinker,” says John W. Edmonds IV, library foundation president. “One of my earliest memories is coming with her to the library.” Kitty Edmonds was the catalyst for starting the Eastern Shore Public Library.

The $65 million Col. Samuel Slover Library was among the country’s most technologically advanced libraries when it debuted in downtown Norfolk in 2015. To keep its technology in the forefront, the Landmark Foundation created in 2010 The Virginian-Pilot Fund to underpin technology grants. The fund is named for the Norfolk-based newspaper, which Samuel Slover owned who founded the Pilot’s parent company.

Amazing transformations happen in public libraries. Children become readers. History is preserved and examined. Everyone is encouraged to become lifelong learners.

When the East Ocean View Garden Club disbanded in 2005, it sold its club headquarters and donated proceeds to start the East Ocean View Library Fund. Through that act of generosity, Lynn Cannon, Sara Grier and Jean Sawyer, the last club members, made sure their old club’s legacy would always benefit residents of the neighborhood where their club flourished for 59 years beautifying the neighborhood, supporting community groups and teaching about gardening. The donors specified that the designated library fund support the Mary D. Pretlow Anchor Branch Library in Ocean View. Annual grants maintain the library’s reading garden and help buy books and computers in tribute to the garden club whose members loved their community. Lynn Cannon (left) Sara Grier and Jean Sawyer were the last garden club members.

Six Hampton Roads Community Foundation endowed funds provide ongoing grants to improve libraries while celebrating the people who value these places of knowledge. In 2006 Idaho resident Laverne Powell Winn honored her late mother by creating the Kathrina B. Powell Fund to provide annual grants to branch libraries in Norfolk, where Laverne grew up. “During the 1930s my mother’s only entertainment was going to the library and getting books,” said Laverne, who as a child accompanied her mom on walks to the neighborhood library. Kathrina, who died in 1986, was raised in a Georgia town with no public library. As an adult, Kathrina considered “going to the library like going to church. It happened every week,” said George Powell of San Diego, her son, who as a child spent hours in the neighborhood library with his mom. Kathrina Bush Powell loved going to the library with her children.

starting his career. He worked for many years in New York City before moving to Norfolk, where he worked as an advisor and lived his retirement years. His designated fund provides annual grants to Norfolk Public Library to use to enhance its collection and services.

The four Taylor sisters were born between 1904 and 1908 and lived in Norfolk’s Colonial Place neighborhood. They were only 1 to 5 years old when their father died, leaving them to be “raised poor but proud,” said the late J. Hume Taylor Jr., Cecilia Taylor’s son. The Maury High School graduates were voracious readers who educated themselves beyond high school with books. They remained close throughout life and shared a lifelong love of reading – especially British novels and murder mysteries. The sisters passed away between 1997 and 2005. In 1999, relatives created the Taylor Sisters Library Fund to honor the book-loving sisters and forever benefit the Norfolk Public Library system. Grants have bought books and enhanced library preschool programs at Norfolk’s 14 libraries. Sally (left), Cecilia, Elizabeth and Virginia Taylor in 1913.

Virginian-Pilot grants helped buy the library’s initial technology and recently equipped a new maker studio with 3D printers and high-tech tools. “We wanted the library to be not only a beautiful building with nice books, but to also have appropriate technology. And, technology doesn’t last as long as buildings,” says Frank Batten Jr., president of the Landmark Foundation and Samuel Slover’s great-nephew.

Deborah (right), her mom, Marian Homzak, and sister Janice were ready to go on an outing in this 1955 photo.

Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce’s marketing committee and on The Up Center’s board of directors. Her career progressed from speech writing to managing the railroad’s corporate communications and directing its investor relations. She was executive director of the Norfolk Southern Foundation before retiring in 2010. Today Deborah serves on the Governor’s School for the Arts board and Virginia Opera’s statewide and Hampton Roads boards. She chaired the Virginia Commission for the Arts for two years and served on its board for five years. In addition to her board service and attending all kinds of arts events, Deborah enjoys traveling and spending time with her family – husband John, son Drew, daughter Hilary and three grandchildren. She likes knowing that through her community foundation, she always will help arts organizations. And, “you don’t have to be fabulously wealthy to be a philanthropist.”

She discovered her love for opera as a senior in high school when her mother took her to a Metropolitan Opera performance. “Cleveland is a community that is very philanthropic and has an abundance of arts and culture,” says Deborah, a Smithfield resident and member of the Hampton Roads Community Foundation’s Legacy Society for Hampton Roads. “I assumed every community had a super symphony and a great arts museum. I now realize that this doesn’t happen unless people step up,” she explains. As a regular donor to area arts organizations, Deborah is making sure her support continues forever. In her estate plans, she arranged to create a future designated fund at her community foundation that will provide annual grants to nonprofits meaningful to her. Deborah, who earned a journalism degree from Ohio State University, moved to Hampton Roads in 1982 from Washington, D.C. As one of the first 20 staff members of the newly merged and relocated Norfolk Southern railroad, she delighted in being among the “pioneers coming up with a new brand.” Part of that brand involved Norfolk Southern’s corporate staff volunteering in Hampton Roads. Deborah soon joined the Virginia Opera’s guild and chaired its gala. She served on the

Carolyn

Giving Back for Good Lives

Glen McClure

Robert, who served on the Governors Highway Safety Commission, chaired a Medical Society of Virginia Highway Safety Commission and helped found the Virginia Beach Safety Council. After retirement, Robert volunteered at the Beach Health Clinic for several years. Today, his skills with precision tools are put to good use in his home workshop, where he turns wood to create intricate bowls and containers. The Waddells enjoy supporting causes they care about and spending time with their children and 12 grandchildren. Both are active at Francis Asbury United Methodist Church. Carolyn recently retired after singing in the church choir for 50 years. She continues to knit prayer shawls and christening blankets with a church group.

The Waddells raised their four children in Virginia Beach, where he practiced orthopedic surgery for 27 years before retiring. “I saw Virginia Beach as an evolving opportunity,” he says. “With a new hospital under construction, it was a superb opportunity to be on the ground floor of a practice in orthopedics.” He joined a one-year-old practice that was the first orthopedic group in Virginia Beach. In 2017, the couple created a legacy that Dr. Robert and Carolyn Waddell are will last forever by starting a donor-advised long-time Virginia Beach residents fund at the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. “We started thinking how to give back to our community and wanted “Working in medicine was always my objective,” something flexible,” Robert says. “We decided to get says Robert, whose mother was a nurse and father a started now.” physician. “I remember making house calls with my Over the decades, the Waddells have helped others dad.

The aftermath he witnessed following School and the Virginia Commonwealth University horrendous traffic accidents inspired him to create a School of Medicine. highway safety program. The Waddells married after Carolyn’s graduation Most of the “significant auto accidents were caused from Radford University and during Robert’s last year by someone going too fast,” he says.

Michael Lowder has gone from being homeless and unemployed to having a home, a job and a healthy lifestyle.

Glen McClure

Judeo-Christian Outreach Center, Union Mission and the Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center. Some partners “make participation in LIFT mandatory for their homeless clients,” Jim notes. LIFT came along at the right time for Lowder, who connected with LIFT through PIN Ministry in Virginia Beach. “I went from living on the streets … to becoming selfsufficient. The kindness of LIFT volunteers is the first thing you notice when starting the program,” Michael notes. By working with exercise coaches, Michael gained physical and mental stamina. Group workouts incorporated yoga, pull-ups, push-ups, jumping jacks, planks and highintensity interval segments. LIFT equipped Lowder with exercise clothing, exercise gear, an activity journal and a pedometer. LIFT nutritionists helped him choose and cook healthy, budget-friendly meals while volunteers equipped him with job-seeking strategies. Since graduating from LIFT in 2017, Michael has been hired as a restaurant manager, reconnected with family and moved into a Norfolk apartment. He exercises regularly and has run in three marathons. He is proud of running on a 12-person relay team that covered 240 miles from Virginia Beach to Washington, D.C., to raise funds for homeless shelters. “LIFT is helping me grow into a better man,” says Michael, who feels “a sense of accomplishment that comes from exercising regularly.”

He credits the LIFT Fitness Foundation with his transformation. LIFT is an acronym for lifting spirits, improving bodies, feeding souls and transforming lives. The program started in 2010 and incorporates exercise, nutrition and job readiness training to help homeless people in Hampton Roads lead better lives. LIFT is funded in part by a $45,000, three-year Hampton Roads Community Foundation grant from the William A. and Jane M. Charters Fund. This is a field-of-interest fund for basic human needs. LIFT’s founder, Jim White, proudly refers to all participants as “athletes.” Lowder is among 168 athletes who have graduated from the 30- to 90-day program since 2014. Along the way, the athletes have logged 32 million steps, lost a total of 236.5 pounds and found more stability in their lives. White, the owner of Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios, got his idea for helping people without permanent homes after several of them asked to join outdoor exercise sessions he led at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Realizing that people experiencing homelessness could benefit from “improved nutrition and fitness moved me to take action,” Jim says. LIFT’s fitness and nutrition trainers work with athletes already involved with nonprofit partners that offer shelter and services that help homeless people. To graduate from LIFT, athletes must attend at least 20 out of 24 fitness and nutrition sessions. LIFT’s partners include People in Need (PIN) Ministry, the

Alec Yuzhbabenko’s designs are reshaping his home region.

a new sports center in Virginia Beach and is concept designer for the proposed Norfolk Gateway office building in downtown Norfolk. He also was on the initial design team for the Central Beach Parkway in Town Center. With all his projects, Alec focuses on “the role architecture plays in building cities” and each building’s “impact on its surroundings.” When he graduated from Tech, Alec had options for where to live and work. He considered offers in Chicago, where he had interned, as well as in Washington, D.C., and California. He chose to return to Hampton Roads to

be near family and to make his mark on the region. For 2 ½ years he worked at Clark Nexsen in Virginia Beach, where he had interned. In 2017 he joined the Hanbury firm. He lives in downtown Norfolk, where he enjoys a one-block walk to his office. By using new ideas and innovative designs, Alec wants to “reshape this area and make it more attractive for more young professionals to move back and contribute to the Hampton Roads area.” COURTESY PHOTO

Alec, a 2015 graduate of Virginia Tech’s College of Architecture and Urban Studies, finished his last two years with financial help from an Enid W. and Bernard Spigel Architectural Scholarship administered by the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. Since 1983, the Spigel Scholarship has helped dozens of upper-level students become architects. The scholarship honors the late Bernard Spigel, a Norfolk architect who designed schools, theaters and businesses in Hampton Roads. Spigel passed away in 1968. His daughter, Lucy Spigel Herman, started the scholarship in memory of her dad. Alec, a designer with Hanbury Architects in Norfolk, is lead architect on The Wave, an innovative surf park proposed for 10 acres near the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. This area is now a parking lot where the old Virginia Beach Dome music center once stood. The Wave project has already gained city approval. Alec’s vision for the surf park was born as his college thesis during his last year at Tech. An avid surfer, he envisioned a park with perfect waves as the hub of a vibrant center that includes a music venue, shops, apartments and restaurants. To make this a reality, Alec is partnering with Venture Realty Group and music mogul Pharrell Williams, who also grew up in Virginia Beach. In addition to the surf park, Alec is helping design

Attorney Robert C. Goodman Jr. of Kaufman & Canoles enjoys keeping his long-time friend Virginia Glennan Ferguson’s legacy alive. He serves as donor-advisor to The Cooke Fund – one of two endowed charitable funds created from Virginia’s $3-million-plus bequest to the Hampton Roads Community Foundation in 2012.

Virginia Glennan Ferguson

Rob, who first met Virginia when he was a child, ended up being her attorney and executor of her estate. As The Cooke Fund’s donor-advisor, he strives to “recommend grants consistent with what Virginia would have been proud to do, which is to improve health care and education.” Virginia, who died in 2012 at age 96, was a gregarious, people-loving widow who was born in Norfolk and lived most of her adult life in Virginia Beach. Her late grandfather owned the Norfolk Virginian newspaper and her late father was editor of The Virginian-Pilot and The LedgerDispatch. Ferguson was known for donating time and money to good causes and people in need. In 1995 she gave the lead gift to start Eastern Virginia Medical School’s Glennan Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology. To leave a lasting legacy of generosity, Virginia arranged for a charitable bequest to her community foundation for two funds to honor her maternal family, the Cookes, and her paternal family, the Glennans. The Virginia Cooke Glennan Designated Fund annually provides grants to nonprofits important to Virginia and her mother – Westminster-Canterbury on Chesapeake Bay, Boys’ Home of Virginia and Jackson-Feild Homes. The Cooke Fund underpins innovative programs in Hampton Roads with a preference for helping Virginia Beach residents. Virginia’s idea was “to focus on people-oriented needs,” says Goodman, who

as the fund’s advisor recommends grants to the community foundation to fund. Since 2013, The Cooke Fund has provided more than $500,000 in grants to seven Hampton Roads nonprofits – ACCESS College Foundation, Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters, Eastern Virginia Medical School, the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore, Horizons Hampton Roads, Together We Can Foundation and Virginia Gentleman’s Foundation. Grants to EVMS established the Glennan Lecture Series in Geriatrics, funded an opioid addiction research study, piloted an Advanced Stroke Life Support Program and started the Brock Institute Glennan Nutrition Symposium. The first symposium in March 2018 drew more than 100 Hampton Roads healthcare providers, medical school students and community members to hear national experts talk about geriatric nutrition issues and the problem of food insecurity among older adults. “This is the kind of intellectual exploration that comes from a medical school, which is very important,” says Rob. “That comes right from the things Virginia would be trying to do to innovate and make things better.” Each grant Rob recommends for funding gets the Virginia Glennan Ferguson test: Would this be a program Virginia “would be proud to do” and “would she be happy?”

The trust and estates lawyer won the 2017 Barron F. Black Community Builder Award from the Hampton Roads Community Foundation for exemplifying the spirit of Barron Black, the community foundation’s first board chair.

He was known for connecting clients to charitable causes while generously supporting his community. Amy was a paralegal at Hofheimer Nusbaum law firm before her mentor, lawyer Robert C. Nusbaum, encouraged her to go to law school. The mother of two young children commuted to the Marshall Wythe School of Law at William & Mary and graduated near the top of her class.

Previous Barron F. Black Community Builder Award Winners

Barron F. Black (1894-1974), a founder of Vandeventer Black, inspired the Barron F. Black Community Builder Award. In 1950 he helped found the Hampton Roads Community Foundation – southeastern Virginia’s largest grant and scholarship provider. Black chaired the board for 24 years and encouraged area residents to be generous. He helped create Eastern Virginia Medical School and volunteered with Norfolk Public Library and Norfolk Historical Foundation. His bequest created a permanent community foundation fund that helps his community today.

How

Our partners in philanthropy hail from all walks of life. They are government workers, teachers, military personnel, nurses, doctors, seamstresses, telephone operators, and renowned business and civic leaders. Some donate during the lifetimes. Others choose to leave an estate gift. And, some do both. All share one primary goal – helping people in southeastern Virginia. Since 1950 the power of endowment has helped donors’ gifts grow over time while funding nonprofit grants, providing college scholarships and underpinning key initiatives designed to solve major issues in our region. To partner with us, you can give a tax-deductible gift now using cash, appreciated stock or a charitable gift annuity. Or, opt for future gifts through your will, IRA or other estate plans. Some donors choose to do both – give now as well as later. We welcome and appreciate charitable donations of all sizes. If your gift is $25,000 or more, you can start a permanent charitable fund, select the type of fund and purpose that represent you best, and give your fund a special name. You also can choose to remain anonymous. Options for starting permanent funds now or through a future bequest include:

• Mail a tax-deductible check using the envelope in this publication.

• Go to hamptonroadscf.org and donate through our secure online system.

• Talk with us about arranging for a charitable gift of appreciated stock or other assets.

• Include the Hampton Roads Community Foundation in your will, trust, IRA or other retirement plans.

• Join the Community Leadership Partners, our active philanthropy group.
